Some things don't last forever, but some things do. Like a good song, or a good book, or a good memory you can take out and unfold in your darkest times, pressing down the corners and peering in close, hoping you recognize the person you see there. Most things don't last forever, but the important things do.. like a real friendship or the success of someone who never quits. These things are timeless. I find myself coming to terms with the fact that Love requires a leap of faith and that a soft landing is never guaranteed. When it works, Love is amazing. There is a reason for all those sappy love songs. Holding people away from you doesn't make you strong; in fact, it makes you weak. Because you're doing it out of fear. I think some things are meant to be broken. Imperfect. Chaotic. It's God's way of providing contrast. There have to be a few holes in the road. Accepting life for what it is and taking it by the horns is the way to true happiness. Your life should be a prize, not a project. Life should be full of hot cups of coffee, lazy summer walks to the mailbox, winters spent bundled in quilts and lots of sticky kisses for Mommy. Life is taking a day off work, just because. Because you deserve it. We're all so caught up in how we wish things could be, how we wish we could change what was. But without studying the past, we won't understand the future. It's all connected.
